Johnson: Give DNA Storage Plans A Chance

Shadow Home Secretary calls on coalition government for period of grace before binning potential evidence… ... The Shadow Home Secretary has suggested that the DNA of those arrested should be held for the next six years to determine if there is a firm case for doing so. During a debate at the APA-ACPO conference, Alan Johnson told Policing and Justice Minister Nick Herbert that using stored DNA to check against evidence found at crime scenes is a valuable weapon in detecting crime. The new coalition government has pledged reform of the national DNA database amid concerns that samples of [more...]

The street value of prescription medications have steadily increased and the ease of getting prescription medications have also increased due to generic low cost alternatives. For example, take Xanax. One can acquire a bottle of generic Xanax for approximately $4.50 from any major pharmacy in the US. Each pill has a street value of approximately $5-10 dollars. This is scary! What is more astounding is that there are so many prescriptions written each year where the bottles generally go untouched! This has become a major problem, especially in the area of pain management. One may be [more...]

Facts About Home Paternity Testing | I am pregnant!

People who will be using the DNA final results in court and legal proceedings must get laboratory DNA screening instead of the home-test. In legal paternity checks, the court seeks to establish that the DNA samples are monitored to steer clear of tampering or screening by a biased party. Residence paternity assessments are ordinarily performed beyond legal requirements. They’re uncomplicated to obtain since convenience retailers and online shops are selling these kits. As soon as you send the outcomes to the laboratory to analyze, they are sure to keep the outcomes private. As a matter of [more...]

Me, a Native American?

It means that he has a specific set of DNA markers. Those markers show that his maternal ancestors were part of that crazy group of people that left Africa approximately 50 000 years ago, and arrived in South America some 30 000 years later. It also means that my maternal ancestors on my fathers side were Native Americans. And this, I can't deny, I find very fascinating and quite cool. If you're wondering how I found out about my ancestry you might not have heard of National Geographic's Genographic Project. The best way to understand what it is, is to see this Youtube video.

Home DNA Tests: Proposed New rules : : Healthcare News

A set of new rules and guidelines have been put forward by Human Genetics Commission (HGC) to crack down on inaccurate and harmful home do-it-yourself DNA tests freely sold over the internet. Many private companies, based mainly in the US, offer such direct to consumer testing kits that estimate a person’s risk of suffering from diseases like Alzheimer’s or breast cancer, by analyzing the genetic codes. Paternity testing or finding out the identity of the father is another reason as to why these tests are gaining in popularity. The Commission has expressed its reservations about [more...]

Italy institute could not extract DNA from blood samples

They have now asked to send the DNA samples directly. I need to check if there is anyone capable of extracting DNA samples here. Then I will need to figure out how to send the samples and then actually send them. This is so frustrating. I am sure the institute in Italy did their best and I am sure this was unavoidable.

Darwin's God: For What Profit?

But paternity testing and DNA fingerprinting are completely unrelated to the pseudogene example presented by evolutionist Ken Miller at the Kitzmiller trial. This comparison of forensic tests with evolutionary homologies is another common evolutionary canard that evolutionists use to mislead those not familiar with molecular biology. Forensic tests are performed where genealogical relationships are known to exist because they are empirically observed. There’s no question that people have children, and those children’s DNA sequences derive from their parents, grandparents, and so forth. [more...]

Junk DNA and Complexity Science: A Sad mix

A quote from an extremely mediocre book, Complexity: A Guided Tour. Like most people coming out of the 'complexity sciences', the author has a mediocre grasp of molecular biology, both current developments, and the history of the field. It's frustrating that these network people keep hyping supposedly new revolutionary discoveries made the past 10 years of the genome era - discoveries, that in fact have been known for decades. For people clearly new to biology, molecular biology before the year 2000 was a big black hole of ignorance. There are several claims that make me angry in this book, [more...]

With better measurements of mutation rates, we could improve the calibration of the evolutionary clock, or test ways to reduce mutations, for example. Even with the latest DNA sequencing technology, the researchers had to design a special strategy to search for the vanishingly rare mutations.

Protein Synthesis, DNA Replication - DNA Station

Protein Synthesis, DNA Replication DNA replication is the process of copying a double-stranded DNA molecule to form two double-stranded molecules. The process of DNA replication is a fundamental process used by all living organisms as it is the basis for biological inheritance. As each DNA strand holds the same genetic information, both strands can serve as templates for the reproduction of the opposite strand. The template strand is preserved in its entirety and the new strand is assembled from nucleotides — this process is called “semiconservative replication”. The resulting [more...]
